“We are looking for a few veteran homeowners”

Veterans 360, Habitat for Humanity and The Home Depot Foundation wants to support local veteran homeowners in need of critical house repair.

If you know any veterans (honorably discharged, single income below $45K and family income between $51K/$69K) we want to hear from them. We are especially interested in offering refurbishment/repair services to veterans who need enhancements to their homes due to warrior disability or increased family size. With up to $15,000 in materials the range of work can be quite substantial.

For more information please visit this website. There are a limited amount of awards and they are strictly first come, first qualified, first “served”. VR Rick J. Collins Co-Founder & Executive Director Veterans 360 Office: 858.461.4946 Cell: 949.933.5142
